Applied Nutrition Appoints New Non-Executive Director

Applied Nutrition has announced the appointment of Marnie Millard OBE as an independent non-executive director (NED), effective immediately.

Millard brings a wealth of FMCG experience and a proven track record in leadership and business development to the role.

She previously worked as the group chief executive for Nichols plc, the company behind the iconic Vimto brand, from 2013 to 2020.

Since then, Millard has secured a portfolio of impressive NED positions.

She is currently the chair of UA92, Pura, and Marks Electrical plc, and an NED of Belvoir Fruit Farms.


Her previous roles include chair of the board at Kidly Ltd and NED for Finsbury Food Group plc.

In 2018, Millard received an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her outstanding contributions to international trade and business in the UK’s north-west.

Millard’s appointment follows that of Andy Bell CBE as Applied Nutrition’s chair, in February 2024.

‘Growth And Success’

The chief executive of Applied Nutrition, Thomas Ryder, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Marnie to the Applied Nutrition Board.

“Her extensive experience in leadership, strategic growth, and international trade will be invaluable as we continue to expand our global footprint and grow within the nutritional supplements market, including various hydration, recovery and energy drinks.”


Commenting on her appointment, Millard said, “I am excited to join Applied Nutrition during this exciting period of growth and development.

“With the company’s strong foundations in product innovation and international expansion, I am eager to contribute my expertise in brand marketing, innovation, and people development to support the board in its next stage of growth and success.”
